For the intended readership, I would say this book is interesting and thought-provoking. It is also rather bold in its exclusion of the whole strand of American street photography typified by Winogrand. Some may find this omission unforgivable, but I thought this helped the author make a coherent commentary on the European approach to this genre. Students of art or photography courses doing critical coursework should find this book useful, as would street photographers, who have background in, and appetite for, critical treatment of their pursuit.
Really wish I had not wasted my money.
The book is filled with incomprehensible sentences that require numerous readings to understand and so the overall message is utterly lost. The pomposity of the language is sometimes laughable. Long obscure words are used at every opportunity where simpler ones would suffice. It is a shame that his study of photography and art hasn't crossed over to writing the English language. He would do well to read The Elements of Style
